Opens a dialog window.

Dialog.OPEN(String [, Variable1],...)



Type: Dialog

After you define this variable, you can open the dialog and then use other dialog functions.


Type: Text constant or code

This string contains the text that you want to display in the window. Use a backslash (\) to start a new line. Use number signs (#) to insert variable values into the string. Place the number signs where you want to substitute the variable value. Place a number in the part of the string where a variable value will be substituted (for example, #1####) to be able to reference this field for updating.

If you use @ characters instead of # characters, then the variable value is used as a percentage and is displayed as a progress indicator. The value that is displayed is the percentage from 0 to 9999.

The number of # or @ characters in the string indicates the length of the field or progress indicator.

You can update the fields using the UPDATE Function (Dialog) or INPUT Function (Dialog) or by letting the user edit the values.


Type: Any

Use these optional parameters to specify variables for field1, field2, and so on.
